Poland hopes for good cooperation with new US ambassador - dep FM

A Polish deputy foreign minister has described US ambassador nominee to Poland, Mark Brzezinski, as an experienced diplomat.

The White House officially announced on Wednesday that President Joe Biden had nominated Mark Brzezinski to serve as his ambassador to Warsaw.

"Mark Brzezinski is an experienced diplomat, who understands both our region and existing threats very well. This is of much importance for us; we hope for very good cooperation," Marcin Przydacz told a private Polsat New television programme.

Brzezinski is the son of Zbigniew Brzezinski, who served as national security adviser under US President Jimmy Carter.

Przydacz added that Poland had already approved the nomination, but it still had to be approved by the US Senate.

"Poland has already issued so called agrement," he said, adding that the entire process had taken place in accordance with the established procedure.

Brzezinski Junior served in Barack Obama's administration as the first executive director of the White House's Arctic Executive Steering Committee and as the US ambassador to Sweden. He also served on the White House National Security Council during Bill Clinton's administration, first as a director for Russia and Eurasia and later as director for the Balkans.

"Now there should be a (US - PAP) Senate decision, and later the arrival of the new ambassador. We are waiting for him, and we hope for good cooperation," Przydacz repeated.
